For what it is worth, in the case of Master KH, instructions were given soon after discovery that the boy Krishnamurti must be well versed in English first and foremost, then other languages like French. Sanskrit was deliberately avoided, IMO, precisely because of the enromous amounts of gobbledygook built up over centuries which makes it easy for every street corner teacher to come up with his own translation/interpretation.

Very happy to learn that the Lord Maitreya himself had given such a detailed explanation about why/how he stopped using Krishnamurti as a 'medium'. Do these folks have a memo to this effect from Maitreya as well?!

Ah,knew this was coming. It always does. Repudiated all of US. The important US! If only he had not done that, WE would hail him as the pristine World Teacher!

So the NEW teaching was already known to these people ( then how was it going to be NEW) and they figured out (by repudiating US) he was not giving the new teaching. Great stuff, this.

Sheesh! The least these people could have done before sticking their collective feet in their mouth was to listen to a great Advaita master like Ramana Maharshi. He found the same Krishnamurti teachings to be beyond his expression. Seems for most of these characters in this article, it was way beyond their comprehension.
